Community Support

- Trauma Informed Counselling Services

The 519's Counselling Services are trauma-informed. Our service providers and front-line staff understand the impacts of trauma and work with clients to promote safety. Trauma-informed services are different from trauma-specific services, which usually involve longer-term therapy. If you are looking for trauma-specific services, we can provide you with appropriate referral information. Our online registration form is open between 1st and 10th day of each month:
